Conventional Beltway "wisdom" is that you need "GOP-lite" Democrats to win in traditionally "Red" states. The West Virginia model is proving the Villagers Wrong-- the People of WV's first district are 'woke' and want Kendra Fershèe, unabashed Progressive for Congress. Now she needs our help.
Last Tuesday was a Very Good Day for Democrats, including Progressives.
This is outrageous. After Tuesday’s primary results, the DCCC added some of the winners to their Red-to-Blue page… but not the progressives who won.
The DCCC is 'aggressively ignoring progressives' who won their primaries and moved on to the General. Does that seem like a winning strategy to you?
Stunning victory in NE02 last Tuesday! YAY, Dems! Not so fast. The DCCC has removed the race from their Red-To-Blue page because the Ex-Republican THEY supported lost to a Real Progressive! #UNITY #BlueWave2018? Anyone?
We can win this one by beating the forces of Insider Beltway corruption-- first the DCCC and in November, the GOP. And with great candidates like Levi Tillemann, who we've endorsed for #CO06.
Ellen is part of the progressive grassroots energy that is sweeping the country and she's the kind of leader who won't be satisfied sitting on the backbench taking orders from the party's sclerotic, calcified leadership. Pelosi's, Hoyer's and their team's days are numbered. The congressional Democrats desperately need seasoned, bold leaders like Ellen Lipton to help the party snap out of it before it's too late.
It's strong, idealistic women with real life experience like @karaforcongress who are going to change America, not decrepit, recycled, reactionary Blue Dogs pushed by a corrupt establishment. Blue America proudly endorses Kara Eastman for #NE02!
Allison Ikley-Freeman's successful campaign for a state Senate seat in Oklahoma last week-- where Trump beat Hillary 61.4-32.7% has blown the DCCC strategy all to hell. Blue America to the rescue!
The kind of economic populism these progressives are campaigning about is a clear path to victory for enhancing a blue wave in Texas.
The DCCC are at it again, this time in Orange County, which used to be Deep Red GOP, but Hillary beat Trump there! Time for real Democrats to take their seats.
